The City of Town & Country to protect the land from commercial development originally acquired these thirty-two acres.
It was suitably named by a resident's child in a contest as Preservation Park. The park was dedicated in the summer of 1999.
It was then that our City's future slogan was first uttered: Respect the Past, Honor the Present, Protect the Future.
Rustic mulched pathways through a rich forest, along active stream beds and open fields gave the feeling of country and much
enjoyment of nature to its visitors. Eventually twenty acres were sold to Christian Brothers College High School (CBC), a boys school that moved near by. CBC constructed facilities available for use by public, which include athletic fields and 8 tennis courts
(4 lighted). Park facilities include pavilion, children's playground, sand volleyball court, restrooms, and wood chip trails through the woods to a picnic area besides a paved trail around the circumference of the athletic fields. The length of the paved trail is 3,690ft and for the wood chipped trails is 2,770ft.
The park hours are from sunrise to sunset and the park rules are the same as for the other City parks, currently listed in
this web site.
